The Unplugged Performance Model 3 Ascension is about individualism. It’s about creating the perfect balance of style, performance and luxury to suit a Model 3 owner’s needs and desires. While some lean more into performance with the Ascension-R, some take an OEM+ approach to make their daily commutes more spirited, better looking, and more comfortable.

This Ascension Model 3, based on the Performance variant, did just that. From the unique exterior upgrades, a revamped suspension, and front brakes equivalent to a supercar’s, to the UP X BBS wheels and subtle interior enhancements, this Model 3 turns heads with it’s individualistic approach.

Front and Rear Aero and UP X BBS Wheels

The heart of the Model 3 Ascension is the exterior aero kit. At the front, the Ascension Front Fascia offers a redesigned full-bumper replacement that improves exterior looks and utilizes factory fog lights and mounting. At the tail end of the car, an Ascension Rear Fascia has been applied with optional carbon fiber diffuser fins. A High Efficiency Spoiler, made in collaboration with Koenigsegg Advanced Manufacturing, is fitted to the trunk spoiler and is CFD tested to reduce drag and effectively improve range. Keeping the carbon fiber bits exposed, the remainder of the body is wrapped by Bulletproof Auto Spa in Hawthorne, CA in Avery Spark Red for a unique and head-turning look.

This Model 3 Ascension rides on 20” UP X BBS Flugplatz wheels in Gloss Black, which translates from German as “airfield”, appropriately named after the jump at the Nürburgring. The UP X BBS Flugplatz wheels measure 20×9 with a +32 offset, front and rear, and are designed specifically for the Model 3 application and, here, are applied with Unplugged Performance Aluminum lug nuts in black to complete the package. Connecting the car to the road the wheels are wrapped in a set of Yokohama ADVAN Apex V601 tires sized in a square fitment of 255/40R20 at each corner.

An All-around Improved Suspension with Brakes Suitable for a Supercar

A “better” suspension is subjective to the user and their application. Because the owner uses their Model 3 Ascension as a daily driver a comfortable ride was desired while also improving the performance capability for weekend canyon runs. The Unplugged Performance Luxury Pro Coilovers were installed at all four corners, adjusted to a sporty height that reduces the wheel tire-fender gap and lowers the center of gravity. With damping adjustability, a softer, more supple ride can be achieved for daily commutes and can easily be dialed into a sporty stiffer ride for spirited drives and occasional track days.

Unplugged Performance Front Upper Control Arms and Rear Camber Arms were installed to achieve a perfect alignment to mitigate excessive tire wear, and can also be adjusted to allow for better on-street and on-track grip performance. To round out the suspension upgrades a set of front and rear Unplugged Performance Adjustable Sway Bars have been installed to reduce body roll and enhance rotation in the twisties.

There is a reason most hypercars come with carbon ceramic brakes, their ability to resist heat at extreme levels and significantly lighter weight drastically reduces brake fade and thus stopping distances. To get the most out of the Model 3 Ascension an Unplugged Performance Superlight Carbon Ceramic Big Brake Kit has been installed at the front to ensure the ultimate in safety and performance. This kit is comprised of 15.5” carbon ceramic, up from the factory 14”, 6-piston Unplugged Performance-branded calipers, a set of UP street & track pads, and stainless steel brake lines.

Adding Luxury From Any Seat

To enhance the interior experience of the Model 3, the Ascension includes a full Alcantara headliner upgrade kit, the same material used by high-end luxury cars. It also turns the headliner from gray to black which makes for a more sporty and unified experience from any seat in the car.

The result is unique and personalized, the entire purpose of the Unplugged Performance Model 3 Ascension. For a more detailed look of this Spark Red Tesla Model 3, take a look at the gallery below. To learn more about the Unplugged Performance Ascension program, click here.

What our customers say
I have a Tesla Model 3 LR but the rep at UP accidentally ordered the MY listing instead which is the same since both M3 and MY share most parts including struts. Purchased as the roads in DC just aren't very pleasant and combined with Tesla's stock struts, it's pretty horrendous. Delivery took...
WIFE APPROVED!!! I have a 2018 Model 3 LR AWD with the stock 18" wheels. I've always felt that the ride was a bit stiff and jittery with the stock suspension. Looking around for a solution, I came across coil-over kits which were expensive and I really didn't think I would need the adjustability...
I had my Coilovers installed by NV Auto in Hamilton Canada. They did a good job and I now have a great ride. After about a month of driving I went one step further and put new 18” rims and tires on. This really improved the ride and is is a joy to drive my Tesla again. Thanks unplugged...
Excellent product from a great team with great customer service! The factory Model 3 Performance's suspension is rather underwhelming, so once you add this Sway Bar kit along with the Dual Rate Linear Springs and Luxury Suspension Kit it completely transforms the car! UP also stands by their...
Tight on turns and soft on bumps--the mild springs seemed like the best option for folks who want to keep the vehicle as close to stock as possible while simultaneously improving the vehicle ride quality.
These are absolutely THE BEST brakes (https://www.instagram.com/p/CveWNmjvKwT/) They work flawlessly lap after lap with it's nonstop stopping power, they will last forever. Incredible value for money and Highly recommend to anyone considering using their Tesla for both track and street.
The pictures on the website does not do justice. the wheels look extremely beautiful. Kirk was extremely helpful, and coordination was amazing. My wheels are gloss black, not able to add a picture to the review if not would do it. I went with slightly bigger wheels 20x10.5 front and 20X11 back. ...
The Willans Safety Harness kit along with the Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) The 6-point Harness kit goes hand in hand with the design of the racing seat. It looks absolutely well made and high quality making it a must have...
These wheels are insanely light and strong! And, they look the bomb! If I didn’t look while picking them up, I would have thought they are carbon fiber! The same spec as was originally used on the Bionic Phoenix Model 3 race car! I put in my fastest time at Buttonwillow on these wheels...
This is by far the best front fascia out there and its makes the Model 3 look so much better! It gives it a much sportier look and I get comments on it all the time. One of the simplest upgrades that makes a huge difference as far as the look of the car goes. Couldn't be happier with how it looks....

This brace was an amazing upgrade for my car. I added the UP rear sway bar first then the full UP suspension then this Strut Tower Brace. I feel this completed the feel i was looking for. The cars back end feels so solid while cornering and over the bumpys feels so solid too. A noticeable...
This Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) It looks absolutely well manufactured, high quality and lightweight making it a must have accessory on any Tesla going to the track! Looks stunning and well designed!!
Significantly improved feel from this suspension kit. Don't forget yo get camber adjustments and springs that make this suspension upgrade feel like a whole new car!
These springs were the first real mod I’d ever done to my Tesla and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. They really complete the look on my model 3. And I was surprised to find you don’t sacrifice anything in terms of ride comfort by adding them. The only problem is that now that I’ve...
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
I purchased a set of these Sway bars along with a few other upgrade components for my Model 3 (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8c-F2PEYP) The sway bars improve the ride quality, reduced body roll making the car more rigid and stable. Installation and setup was easy, being adjustable is an added bonus....
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
